What causes the 4 seasons

What Causes the 4 Seasons?

  • The seasons change because the Earth’s axis is tilted.

    • When the northern hemisphere faces the sun, we have summer.

    • At the same time, south of the equator is facing away from the sun, so they are in winter.


Movements of the moon

Movements of the Moon

  • The Moon orbits around Earth once every 27.3 days.

    • The light on the moon comes from the sun.

    • When we see the moon completely lit, it’s called a full moon.

      • The time while the sunlit part gets larger is called a waxing moon.

    • When none of the moon is lit, it’s called a new moon.

      • The time while the sunlit part gets smaller is called a waning moon.

  • The moon is between the Earth and the sun, blocking our view of the sun.

  • Not all of the Earth will see a total eclipse.
